Use this handy organizer after teaching your students what needs to be included in an introduction and conclusion paragraph when it comes to informational writing. The organizer is set up to represent that fact that an introduction paragraph starts broad and becomes more focused while a conclusion paragraph starts more focused and then gets broader towards the end. Each piece of the paragraph is listed in its own section with a little info to help the student remember what needs to be in that part of the paragraph. There is blank space in each section for the student to write or type in the sentences they will use in their paragraph.
I have typically used this organizer with my 8th grade students when writing an informational essay on how to survive certain natural disasters.
